Directions

  1. In a large pot on high heat, sauté the onion in oil until lightly caramelized, about 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and leek. Cook for 2 more minutes.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the pot, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Partially cover and cook for 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked.
  3. Using an immersion blender, blend some of the soup but allow some chunks to remain. Alternatively, use a standing blender, in which case blending about half of the soup is recommended.
  4. Taste test, add more seasoning if desired, plate, garnish, and serve while hot. Enjoy!

Made this a few days ago. Really nice 🥰

Hello, just tried it for lunch :) super tasty, good, easy, just perfect. I used butternut instead of sweet potatoe.

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2022, 1:45 a.m.

A lovely substitution, Mayela, and so glad to hear!


Rebecca - Jan. 30, 2022, 11:33 p.m.

Really tasty and nourishing. I used coconut milk instead of the soy and added a bit more curry powder. I really liked blending half the soup and leaving the rest chunky. It was really good!

PUL Team - Jan. 31, 2022, 2:27 a.m.

Oh, Rebecca, thanks a bunch for sharing your experience with it! Sounds delightful 😍


Salome van Ingen - Jan. 24, 2022, 9:26 p.m.

Really tasty soup, I accidentally used curry powder that was too spicy for me so beware haha!
I added some vegan soy cooking cream that doused the fire :)

PUL Team - Jan. 27, 2022, 1:37 a.m.

Hi Salome van Ingen 🤗 Oh no - so sorry to hear about the spice! It's super common which is why we opted to make the curry powder optional Cooking cream is a lovely idea to balance it out!

It is also pretty good served chilled. I agree that it can be a great base for varying the herbs. My first attempt resulted in cutting the veggies too small and over blending. So, I nuked and added some sweet potato chunks that were perfect for spooning.

Thank you for the insight, DougieSue, it's so appreciated ✨

Absolutely amazing! Such delicious flavors.


Sanna - Sept. 1, 2021, 4:12 p.m.

I love soup and eat it any time of year, even in summer. I just made this and it was so good - I just had to add a little more of the herbs and it was super satisfying :) I've made a few of the recipes from your site already and was never disappointed - thank you Sadia :)

PUL Team - Sept. 2, 2021, 2:50 a.m.

Hi Sanna, thank you for the review! So happy the soup was enjoyed 🌻


Raxhel - Aug. 31, 2021, 10:24 a.m.

This was a perfect, easy soup. I doubled all of the spices because i like big flavors and ate along with some sourdough bread. The flavors only got better when eating the leftovers! I prefer a smooth soup so I went ahead and blended it to a purée. This was a great first recipe for me to try off your site, and I'm making another one tonight (stuffed bell peps). Cheers

PUL Team - Sept. 1, 2021, 2:15 a.m.

Aw, we're so glad to hear, Raxhel! Thanks for sharing your experience with the soup 🙂


Constanze - Aug. 27, 2021, 10:37 a.m.

A very warming & delicious soup, but still quite easy to make. I really enjoyed it.


Monika - July 13, 2021, 3:58 p.m.

My absolute favourite soup 🤗 Thank you Sadia for this amazing recepie ♥️ I have made it on several occasions, my friends and family also loved it. Even good for babies ☺️
